Technique of Modern Welding


    IN recent constructional engineering there has been no more notable development than the application of welding. Welded joints, to-day, are used in bridges, boilers, ships, roofs, motorcars, aeroplanes and many other structures. At first carried out by rule of thumb methods, a rational technique has been developed, symbols and codes have been introduced, standardised tests established and there is already an extensive literature on the subject. To this literature this translation of a book by the works manager of one of the German State Railways is a valuable addition. The main chapters deal with fusion welding, pressure welding, the applications of welding and the economics of welding. There are also chapters devoted to testing, to accident prevention and to gas-cutting. Descriptions of the various types of plant are included and many useful hints are given on the welding of both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. The book is well printed and illustrated and, contains an adequate index.
